  • "My name is spelt racheal i know it a weird way of spelling it but i like it coz its unique" Jan. 4, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "Love my name, and love the unique spelling. I have heard that Rachael is the non-Jewish way of spelling it. Also, that it is the Southern way. I don't like the idea that it is a misspelling -- it's not Jacquiee for goodness sake -- but I say it is a variation like Ann/Anne or Sara/Sarah." Nov. 22, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is also spelt "Racahel" although my whole life teachers and other people have been spelling it wrong.. like "Rachel" or even "Racheal" this sometimes frustrates me very much!! It's only my best and closest friends that can spell it right. When i was born, there was a HUGE debate between my parents as my dad wanted me to be named rachael and my mum wanted Sarah. As you know.. it turned out to be Rachael and i am very happy about that!" Feb. 9, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is rachael and i do not have the problems that most of the other people on here have talked about. i do have a hard time finding personalized items, but i dont really mind when people spell it wrong. its not as common, so you cant really blame them for it. i dont have a lot of problems with people pronouncing it wrong either. except in middle school, my teacher assumed it was pronounced like michael, and he said it Rake-uL. and sometimes my friends call my Ray-chay-uL, as a joke to distinguish me from our other friend, rachel. also, i was able to write a college admissions essay about my name and how it had taught me that its okay to be different, and that i am not my name, but the person behind it. i got into everywhere i applied because of my essay, and my name."

And now, we're in seventh and there's a really mean girl in my school who's name is Rachel and lots of people spell it that way. My teachers spelled it wrong and it was wrong in the yearbook, and for sum reason everyone mixes up the E and the A like Racheal if I tell them theres an xtra A. But I luv my name. The prettier of the two sisters who won the boy, as it was in the Bible!" Jul. 17, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name Rachael. It sounds complete when you think about it. It doesn't matter if people spell it wrong because i still love my name. I just wonder sometimes if Rachael spelled with the "a" before the "e" is prettier. To me i think it is. In 1992 a movie came out called THE BODYGUARD starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. I was named after Whitney Houston's character Rachel. My Mom changed the spelling though to make it more unique. R-A-C-H-A-E-L flows better when you spell it. Try it!"

  • "My name is Rachael. I am pretty sure that i have seen more people spell my name wrong than they do the right way. My name isn't that hard to spell. in my yearbooks they always right " Dear, Racheal" or they will write " Dear Rachel." Rachael, spelled "a" before they "e" sounds more complete. I would never change the spelling of my name, but i wish people could spell a seven letter name correctly for once. - Rachael" Jul. 12, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Rachael is my daughter's name. We spelled it this way because her Dad's name is Michael, and if you look up Rachael in some baby books, it says it is the female version of Michael. I liked that; and that is a common name with an uncommon spelling. It does get frustrating when her name is always spelled wrong, especially on awards or articles, but she deals with it- rule of thumb is to have them change it if it something we will keep or will continue to be printed. Otherwise it stays misspelled." Jul. 16, 2008: Report as inappropriate

BUT, the pattern is that vowels and consonants alternate, so the hebrew spelling with 3 letters in the bible (r-ch-l) would really be 'rachel', and if it were to be 'rachael', there would have to be a yod in there...like in 'israel' (i.e. r-ch-y-l). that said, i'm a rachAel, and i am happy to be one...people compliment me all the time, and now rachael ray is making us famous!"
